We Love Love Stories !
Tuesday is Valentine's Day. In honor of this special day, we're sharing our favorite love stories with you.
Alan loves Edgar Rice Burroughs and he loves the relationship between Tarzan and Jane in the first three "Tarzan" novels. He also finds Ginny Weasley's love for Harry Potter, as depicted in J.K. Rowlings' novels endearing.
Rachel also finds love in the "Harry Potter" novels. While Severus Snape may seem like nothing but a bitter wizard at first, as the series progresses, you'll see that he was once a young man who was very much in love with Harry's mother Lily. Despite that love being unrequited, he never stopped loving her. Rachel feels that love tops all.
Claire is true to her first love. As a child she loved "The Little House on the Praire" novels by Laura Ingalls Wilder. Today she admires the great love stories interwoven into the novels. What girl wouldn't like to find a great man like Charles Ingalls or Almanzo Wilder?
Jess B. lusts for "Heart of the City," by Ariel Sabar. She says that it's amazing stories of love in NYC that asks the question if iconic landmarks can bring true love in "environmental psychology."
Jess P. wants to skate hearts in the ice whenever she reads "My Sergei," by Ekaterina Gordeeva. From Gordeeva's point of view she describes how she met and fell in love with her ice skating partner Sergei. The duo went on to win many Olympic medals before his tragic death.
My favorite is the relationship between Jessica Darling and Marcus Flutie in Megan McCafferty's "Jessica Darling" novels. I loved how their relationship progressed over the five books in this series. They have their ups and down and after Jessica broke Marcus' heart in "Fourth Comings," you wonder if they'll ever get back together. Then, after years apart, they run into each other at the airport in "Perfect Fifths," and - well I don't want to spoil the ending but I did say it's may favorite love story ;)
